Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 2/9/2014

    " Some of the best scifi I have ever read is contained within this collection. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dallas | 1/30/2014

    " I always enjoy SF short stories. This is the thickest collection of them I've ever seen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ian | 1/28/2014

    " A fine example of the pure mastery that was Arthur C Clarke. He left his mark on liturate with everyone of his stories and his spirit lives on through his life's work. Stimulating both scientists and dreamers, he has had and will always have a profound impact on the way we view the universe around (and under) us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fedaykin | 1/19/2014

    " Some good fun in this. Some stories are lacking though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leo | 12/21/2013

    " I have had this book for probably three years now, and I'm still not through with all the stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brad | 11/25/2013

    " the book only gets 3 stars because its not for everyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 10/21/2013

    " I really enjoyed the visionary science of Clarke's early stories. Some of these stories were extremely short, others were novellas. I found the majority of them to be very intriguing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arne | 9/30/2013

    " A devestating back-catalogue by the spiritual grandfather of science-fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele | 9/8/2013

    " I don't think Clarke could ever write something that wasn't interesting and thought provoking! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bitflipper MacDonald | 7/30/2013

    " Just re-read this collection. Simply awesome! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 5/26/2013

    " I love re-reading all of these but I am aware that most of them are pretty cheesy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom K | 3/29/2013

    " A bit inconsistent. The stories in here that are good are really, really, good. Those that aren't good are real stinkers. Fortunately there is more good than bad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 7/9/2011

    " Fun book to read as its all short stories of all varieties - really enjoyed this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Riju Ganguly | 3/27/2011

    " A massive collection of stories that capture an entire era of science-fiction with its fluctuating thrusts and priorities. My favourites, from amongst this collection, are too many, to list here. Recommended, but for best possible appreciation, try to spread it across a considerable time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kiston | 11/27/2010

    " Excellent Sci-Fi. His short stories are better than his novels, in my opinion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jack Eason | 8/13/2010

    " A fine collection of Arthur's works, well worth reading... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Gager | 7/12/2010

    " This is to represent the many AC stories and(probably) anthologies I've read years ago. Date read is a guess. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dom | 11/10/2009

    " Truth be told, I included this collection from one of sf's masters because of one particular story. Tucked among Clarke's incredible tales is a story called "The Star." It's about the most thought-provoking work you'll find in under ten pages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ronald Vasicek | 10/21/2009

    " Great bunch of short stories "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erik | 6/21/2009

    " I read this during the summer at the cottage up in SW Michigan. Some of the stories and novellas had been read before during childhood. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles | 6/5/2009

    " Another omnibus of Clarke's work. Excellent. Contains Childhood's End, which is Clarke's ultimate masterpiece in my opinion. "
